This trailer follows in the “Tree of Life” style of the first trailer. But offers more images of Superman in his costume. And more of the epic feel that a Superman film needs.

We can hear every geek on Internet collectively screech: “Dump the texture.” And we have to agree. It’s a Superman costume, not an imitation alligator bag.
The classic Supes costume is a thing of beauty. Duplicate it, don’t improve on it. Because you can’t, Mr. H’wood Costume Designer. It took decades and hordes of artists to get it to its iconic splendor. Honor that. Respect that. Heck, use it! It’s sold everything from pajamas to peanut butter. And, if you honor it, it will sell your movie too!
So it’s official, British actor Henry Cavill will be Clark Kent/Superman in the upcoming Zack Snyder directed Superman film. Cavill is best known for appearing as Charles Brandon in “The Tudors” and as “Randy” in the 2009 Woody Allen film Whatever Works. Fan reaction has been muted. Probably because most fans have never heard of him.
But now news has leaked out that’s sure to send fans rushing for their keyboards: Kristen Stewart is being rumored as a potential “Lois Lane”. We aren’t Twilight or Kristen Stewart bashers. We think she’s a talented actress and would be fine in the role. But we can’t help thinking that Anne Hathaway, announced as Catwoman in Dark Knight Rising, seems a more appropriate choice for Lois Lane. And Stewart seems more appropriate for Catwoman.
